Oreo Mint Ice Cream

When I think of the perfect refreshing dessert for summer, I instantly think of MINT ICE CREAM. My dad’s favorite ice cream has always been “Mint-N-Chip” from Rite Aid (aka Thrifty’s). Those of you have never experienced Thrifty’s ice cream, I’m sorry… you are truly missing out! Its so delicious and so inexpensive. 

I recently found 5 gallon buckets of Thrifty’s ice cream at my local Restaurant Depot. Um, HEAVEN! Because of this find my fiance and I are seriously looking into an extra large ice-cream/meat cooler. 

Needless to say, we LOVE ice cream.

Because of this fascination with mint, and my fiancé’s fascination with Cookies & Cream ice cream, I decided to combine the two and make: Oreo Mint Ice Cream. It turned out AMAZING!

Oreo Mint Ice Cream:

(makes 1 quart)

INGREDIENTS:

2/3 cup coarsely chopped Oreo cookies

2 large eggs

3/4 cup sugar

2 cups heavy cream or whipping cream

1 cup whole milk

2 teaspoons peppermint extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

1. Place the cookies in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.

2. Using your stand up mixer, with the whisk attachment, whisk the eggs until light and fluffy for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar and continue to whisk for 1 more minute. Pour the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add the peppermint and vanilla extracts and blend them into the cream mixture.

3. Transfer the mixture to your ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions. (If you have a Cuisinart ice-cream maker, I freeze in the mixture for 23 minutes).

4. After the ice cream stiffens, add the chopped cookies, then continue freezing for 3 more minutes.

5. Remove the ice cream from your mixer and freeze in your freezer for an additional 2 hours to harden the ice cream completely. 

6. DEVOUR!

YUM! I am planning on making ice cream today and I might just use your recipe as a base. I typically use only the yolks, but will try it with the whole egg.

So nice to see a fellow mint ice cream fan! When I was little, I'd always get a sugar cone with a scoop of mint chocolate chip when we'd go for ice cream.
Love the idea of using Oreos in your version… definitely trying this out next time I'm craving ice cream!

I had that "Mint Oreo cookie Shake" "Jack and the Box" had one time, and this reminds me of it! I'm so going to try this! I've used my Icecream maker one summer and stored it away, its time it gets used again!
